It's been a funny week on the telly box, I found myself thinking that there was nothing on for most of the time. I think we are at that time again when a lot of good stuff is finishing and we are ready for something new. The good news I learnt this week is that Dancing on Ice is coming back in the new year, woo hoo! (happy dance, slips over on bottom). No I'm no skater girl but I was gutted when they gave it got the chop a few years back. It's revamped with a new look and the line up looks good......

Phil and Holly are back presenting and it's not decided who the judges are yet but the panel may include Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean in a judging role rather that a coaching role. I can't see that but you have to remember they are both 59 years old so we'll see.
The bad on tv is the amount of villainy about and the award definitely goes to Poldark. Woah! That randy Reverend Osbourne Whitworth who is so detached from the church as he is sinning badly with his behaviour to Morwenna. He gives me the creeps but then there is the sultry and sulky George Warleggan with his miserable plain expressions and his devious plans, oh I feel a pantomime 'boooooooo' coming on. They are both so bad aren't they? I know old George is a bit mad because he suspects he may not be the father of his baby and that his enemy, the well pruned Poldark may be the daddy, but crikey me he needs to get some yoga in or a mindfulness class. They need Jeremy Kyle with his DNA testing kit, can you imagine them all on that show? Poldark does feature some great acting though and we will see the apparently explosive finale coming up Sunday 6th August at 9pm BBC1.
The Ugly was contained in a programme called 'Is it safe to be gay and live in the UK?'. Why do these dreadful violent people prey on innocent folk who are just getting on with their lives and loving who they want to love. It infuriates me that there are some people on this planet who cannot get to grips with same sex relationships and that's ugly!!. The attacks on these beautiful people were just unbelievable and with one man losing his life, yes his life gone because someone didn't like him being with another man. I tell you what this world has to sort it's self out and some people need to take a hard look at themselves as to whether all that hate is really worth it. Love should shine through for whoever, as long as they are happy.
The great series 'In the Dark' came to a fantastic conclusion and surprised me again. Didn't see that at all (no spoilers). She did well running around with that huge massive bump which to me didn't always look that genuine. I know it's not real and she's not really pregnant in real life but there were times it just looked odd. All bumps are different though. Brilliant series, would love to see that back again.
So I leave you to get on with another week, we can look forward to a brand new series called Trust Me coming up on Tuesday 9th August 9pm BBC1 featuring the new Time Lord Jodie Whittaker. A four part drama about a Sheffield nurse who loses her job and takes on her friends identity as a Doctor. Love the advert for this at the moment in which she says 'but I'm not a real doctor', oh yes you are, you are THE Doctor.
Thanks for reading and I hope to catch you back here tomorrow for Music Monday.
Take care for now.......
